What was your favorite treat as a child? Rice krispy treat? Chocolate chip cookie? Twinkie? Whatever it was, this recipe is sure to bring back a little glimpse of your childhood. Wait...am I dating myself? I guess if your childhood was in the 90's, maybe this recipe won't do that. But I was a child of the 70's where Twinkies, Ho-Ho's, Ding Dongs and Hostess Cupcakes were all the rage. While I rarely ate any of those (except for snack after a soccer game!), I loved recreating these: Hostess Cupcakes.
They are complete with that little white squiggly line that let you know they were a Hostess Cupcake. I found this recipe of the Bake at 350 blog and it did have quite a few steps and was a bit more complicated than some other recipes. But it was well worth it in the end.
My favorite part??? The white creamy filling!!!
These cupcakes were amazingly good. It does take some extra time to fill them and frost with the ganache, but they were well worth it. And make sure you put on a nice thick layer of that ganache, it's so good. If you want to bake up some childhood in your kitchen, this is it! The recipe is long, so I will link you to where I found it. Bake at 350: Hostess Cupcake Recipe
